Who do you trade to clear cap space for Pietrangelo?

With the Blues dealing away Jake Allen and his contract to the Montreal Canadiens, the Blues freed up $4,350,000 worth of cap space toward signing Alex Pietrangelo. When you take Ville Husso’s $750,000 hit into consideration, that’s not going to be enough to get Pietrangelo plus a raise in under next season’s $81.5 million cap. Another shoe is going to fall.

Unfortunately, until Petro signs - either in St. Louis or elsewhere - a good chunk of off-season Blues news and commentary is probably going to focus on one thing: who else do they have to trade to get their captain back?
